BookFest Windsor 2013 takes place November 2 and welcomes more than 25 celebrated authors presenting readings, panel discussions, book signings, and workshops on a variety of genres including novels, biographies, short stories, poetry, graphic novels, and comics.

In addition to the program on November 2 at the Capitol Theatre, there are also special BookFest Windsor events at a number of venues including the Central Branch of Windsor Public Library, 850 Ouellette Avenue.

On Saturday, November 2, WPL presents award-winning author Kenneth Oppel who will be leading a free workshop at 10:30 am in the Self-Publishing Lab in which he will be speaking on how he got his start as a writer and touch on several of his titles as well as the inspiration for them.
